Drawings made of light or using the inked tire of a Model A Ford, paint-splattered goats, roller-skating parachutists, a bubbling vat of mud—these are just some of the ways Robert Rauschenberg redefined art. In this session, we will investigate Rauschenberg’s famous notion of acting "in the space between" art and life by looking at works that challenge traditional relationships between artist, viewer, and art.

This session is led by Petra Pankow.

Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with collections and special exhibitions.

Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free for members and Museum admission ticket holders. No registration is required.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
